I like this idea very much. And loved it that you were able to put in my Kasmir as one of it and you've actually done a better job then me at giving a little summary of them. Excellant beyond degree and I don't care if it's too powerful for we have to be realistic. There are weapons out there that are very powerful and sometimes you just have to live with a very powerful thing like this. But I'm not saying that every weapon should be powerful, only to a degree. Count this as a Divine Weapon then
Um, I just wanted to say that I didn't see your idea of a black spear until just now. Yours is admittedly a better idea than mine, but then you have a lot more experience at this sort of thing, from what I can tell. Perhaps I'll always be new at this site. Thanks. Go to Comment
As the "Snicker snack" vorpal sword is to the jabberwock, so is the Black Spear to the draconic. Since the spear appears to be hammered, non-magical, and not valuable, it will most likely be reforged into better equipment, tools, or furnishings in times of peace. The spear is most likely lost. However, when dragons rule once again, I imagine that the dark god will be called on once again. It could be a fun quest to find the pieces of star iron that once, as a spear, brought the dragons low. Go to Comment
If it occupies a significant part of a whole continent, there could live a few primitive communities on its edge... in deep fear of the monstrous weather nearby, maybe even worshipping it, or placating with gifts. Or sacrifices. Like PCs sent in to destroy it. Go to Comment
A weapon of mas destruction used without means to control it - does it remind us of something? With nuclear, biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction at our command, we must learn reason, lest we too perish under a stormshroud.
Paradoxically, mages could use the area for negotiations, as none of them would dare to cast a spell there... Go to Comment
Scenario as History. A great series of scenerio elements that show the March of History.
You can have the Queen, through the King's Black Arrow (assassin), get word to the gangs that violence must be hidden and discrete. "The Crown does not want to involve itself in what is obviously an intraguild affiar." If they do not keep their "housekeeping" under cover, the Crown will be forced to take direct action. If they wish to keep their monies, they need to keep it in the shadows. Words to this ilk passed to the Shadow Guilds, and one or two guild "events" crashed by army regulars, will keep most of the public violence to a minimum. Perhaps these guilds will need to pay "protection money" to the enforcers to keep them out of their affairs.
The Queen could also publically point that "These Criminals are the only ones drinking Alcohol... and look at their violent behavior..." Thus making her cause look more rightous and them look bad in the eyes of most people.
These two affairs and the rise of a boss of bosses will create a more stable environment. A new status quo will occur. Go to Comment
